Nokia Siemens Networks to lay off up to 5,700

J&J to cut up to 7 pct of work force; sets charge (7,000-8,000)

You can give bankers free money and cut so long before workers and citizens get fed up and social unrest sets in.....

Buses, subways halted by Philly transit strike

Fools...none of this is hard to see....just difficult to accept it is happening in America.

It is not the end of the world......simply the end of the world as you know it.

Warren Buffett makes his biggest investment in the U.S. economy and the Narcississtic One continues with the Chicken Little commentary.

Tough one here - would I listen to the Oracle who is the richest investor in the history of the world on a nominal basis . . .  or would I listen to some street entertainer that types gloom and doom with continually updated dates?

Alstry is like options, we soon will be moving to the forward month (12/10/09).  Keep posting because it helps remind me to do the opposite.

 Buffett BOUGHT that company.  He can control it and he always buys with a VERY long horizon.  Plus, the economy as a whole can suffer while a few companies and even industires do well.
